Vira Wellness offers bursitis treatment
Bursae are tiny sacs that hold synovial fluid and are found when tendons and muscles glide over bones. Synovial fluid is necessary for lubricating joints and facilitating smooth movement. Inflamed synovial fluid, which is too thin and unhealthy to protect joints during movement, is present in people with arthritis or other degenerative joint diseases.
Bursitis is the inflammation of the bursae. Bursitis is most commonly found in the hip, elbows, and shoulders. Bursitis can affect the knees, heels, and big toe joint, among other places. Anti-inflammatory medicines or steroid injections directly into the afflicted bursae are the most common treatments for bursitis. Because conventional therapies only provide short relief from bursa pain, many individuals prefer chiropractic for bursitis because it provides long-term pain relief without the need of prescription or over-the-counter medications.
